Our friends at the Intermountain West Joint Venture (IWJV) have released the recording of its webinar on the human dimensions of flood irrigation that support working lands, wildlife, and people.
Digging Deeper into Flood Irrigation: Why do ranchers do what they do? (CLICK HERE)
This webinar digs into the facilitators and constraints to maintaining flood irrigation on the landscape that support working wet meadows for ranchers and the environment. Discussion includes recommendations on how to apply the research results. This project was led by researchers from Virginia Tech and University of Montana and funded by U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (Mountain-Prairie Region), USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (Oregon State Office), and IWJV. This co-produced research project was made possible through the involvement of many local and regional conservation partners and the voluntary participation of ranchers in southern Oregon-northeastern California and southwest Wyoming-northwestern Colorado.
